Just my opinion but I thought Riley's part was pretty sick. The only part that wasn't the most exciting, to me, was Zach. And even his part I enjoyed and watched more than once. Sure, I had some little gripes like wishing there was more Boss footage, Elissa's part being longer, and more guest tricks.

I think I already posted in this thread but I really didn't think the video was that bad at all. There has been a long time between videos, skating has completely changed, Baker has completely changed but even still most of the OG riders still crushed. Like someone mentioned above, if we compare B4 to other perennial brands that put out videos this year (Zero, Toy, Santa Cruz and Birdhouse - all of which had incredible skating, and some perfect standalone parts,) one could argue though that Baker 4 was subjectively better than those other videos. Which is maybe why there is a 75 page thread about B4 and not about "Programming Injection” or “Damn It All" (which again had some really fucking dope skating.)

It’s 75 pages because half of those pages were people complaining about the video not coming out exactly when they wanted it to come out and the other half of those pages were grown ass men complaining about the video not meeting their unattainable expectations.

This isn't just one man project... it's a co-adhesive effort

lol
Now, we used to say we put on our tights to put on the world. So I don't think it tarnishes the image at all.

I heard he was on pills and left after his part

Kader part was a real vibe killer. Doing an impossible on flat after an underwhelming trick does not make it a better clip.


Lost respect for Kader after he didn't go on stage. Who cares if you were that nervous , hide behind somebody .  Least you can do after Baker hype you so much since day 1

was that actually his excuse? He was nervous? jesus
Yeah this is a valid take. How are you throwing yourself down stairs and handrails, not scared, watching clips of yourself acting up, pulling pranks on big pink, comfortable in front of a camera, posting stupid videos on twitter and insta, but then too nervous to walk on a stage while someone else talks, namely the guy who has repped and mentored you, shaped your career.
Gotta remember that he's still young i guess, but i think he's just a bit too cool, all those hypebeast clothes are getting to his head. Hopefully he gets a bitch slap from reality in the next few years and pulls his act together.
on the commentary for the scene where jeremy klein rollerblades at that little skatepark he said the actual blader with dreads who was there came up to him and asked him if he listens to korn

Vilifying a literal teenager for being too nervous to go up on stage before his (excellent, mind you) breakout video part while, at other times, doing very normal teenage activities is among the worst takes in this thread - especially when you consider that "the guy who ... shaped his career" has dealt with way worse and doesn't seem to give a shit if he's onstage or not. Throw in that bit about "pulling his act together" as if he's some legal liability and not, you know, a teenager growing into himself after dropping something like ten minutes of footage in the past year, and I have to congratulate you on your literal garbage for brains. Jesus, get a clue.

Im not buying the nervous story, he probably knew his part was shit by the lack of effort he put in. Hiding in shame.

Chill bruh. I think you misinterpreted my post. I think he probably was nervous but if he was older and a little more mature he could have seen the importance of overcoming his nerves to stand on stage during this moment, given the significance of it and how much AR has done for him. His face is the literal cover of the film (as in actually literal, not "a brain surgeon would find a used diaper filled with cigarette butts inside your skull cavity" literal). Obviously i don't know the guy and can only speculate, but as i said, and as you said, he's only a teenager who is still figuring this shit out. Relax.

Anxiety for trying a scary trick and social anxiety of big crowds are two complete different things. Just because you're not scared trying gnarly shit on a skateboard doesn't mean you can't be terrified of getting on stage in front a big ass crowd of people.

Who edited the video? If I'm not mistaken Beagle, Reynolds and Dollin did in other projects, but I refuse to believe they were the ones that jumped the Fat Bill bandwagon with those zoom ins and unnecessary slow mos. That's the main problem with the video and why it doesn't feel so much like a Baker video, not the lack of hijinks. Oh and the lack of intro and outro too.

The skating was great though, the soundtrack too.

The winners were Rowan (can't think of a most gracious motherfucker on a board) and Baca, that shove it out of the noselide caught me of guard. He should have got the ender and not Figgy as everyone expected him or Kader to get it, it would have been such a cool surprise.

Unnecessary slo mos are the foundation of the Baker brand.  Check Baker Bootlef or 2G when J Strickland was making their videos. 

The Fat Bill looking footage was more than likely shot by Fat Bill.  You don’t control that shit in the edit

All the long lense SF footage was shot by Felix Soto who is employed by Baker. So they definitely have control of how they wanted the footage to look.
